Colin Kaepernick has reached a disgusting new low. He did it intentionally. These high school players will regret their actions, someday…
It is one thing for a spoiled millionaire to stage his own personal protest. It is quite another to indoctrinate impressionable teens who respect and admire you.
Recently, Kaepernick visited Castlemont High Schol in Oakland. He spoke to the high school football team prior to their game.

As you likely know, some high school teams are imitating NFL players that kneel during the National Anthem.
Now, under Kaepernick’s influence, things have gotten much worse:
You are seeing that correctly. The players are laying on the ground, with their hands up, while Kaepernick kneels behind them.
The players are lying on the ground posing in the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative that has become extremely popular among the Black Lives Matter movement.
This is what Kaepernick had to say to these impressionable players: “I had to come support you all, because the same way you all took a stand and stood with me, I had to come out here and stand with you all. So I appreciate what you all did. I love you all. You all are my brothers, I’m here with you.” Next step, converting them all to Islam no doubt. Parents take note… your kids are being brainwashed and used as political pawns.
In the locker room before the game, Kaepernick reportedly also told the players that “they’re making a difference” and “everything they do matters.” He then told them them because they protested in honor of him at another game: “Ya’ll inspired me what you did following that and standing up. You all are doing this at a much younger age than what I did. This took me a while to get to this point, and ya’ll are conscious of this at this point and time to make that stand.” That’s right, Colin… you’ve got to get them young, right?
Kaepernick and those like him are responsible for the now famous #BoycottNFL movement
Were the low ratings from the opening days of the 2016 NFL season just a fluke? Thursday Night Football brought some eye-opening results.
With the final numbers in, the 8:27 – 11:37 PM ET simulcast game drew 15.4 million viewers on for the House of Moonves and the NFL. That’s a drop of 27% from the TNF viewership high of last year’s season opener on September 17. That 2015 game started off the second season CBS has had the franchise. This year’s game was the top show of the night on broadcast and cable.
Among the key 18-49 demo, the Jets vs. Bills game snared a 5.4/21rating. With adjustments, that’s a 42% rise from the fast affiliate demo numbers of early today. On the flipside, the CBS demo result of last night took a 29% hit in the ratings from the TNF season opener of last year. In fact, viewership of last night’s game is not just down from last year’s TNF opener but from the audience of 16.9 million that the second TNF on CBS of 2015 got.
Numbers are down, and if behavior like this continues, they may stay down, permanently.
